Alcorn School District has an active Fine Arts Department across all schools and includes all areas: visual arts, theatre, instrumental and vocal music. Their teachers and students are involved not only with their individual school productions, but with their community as well. The Corinth Arts Council, Corinth Theatre Arts, Tishomingo Arts Council and Arts in McNairy are some of the organizations which have recently benefitted from the participation of our students and teachers.
ASD is proud to highlight not just the victories of our student athletes, but the many talents of our artistic students as well. The arts programs provide so many valuable learning opportunities and experiences to our students. That is why, with the help of our community, we are pushing to increase the involvement of art programs in our school whether it be visual or performance based. Below are just a few snapshots of recent things that students and teachers in our district have been and are doing. We look forward to being to highlight so many other great artistic experiences in the future of Alcorn School District!

Biggersville High School choir students put on a stellar performance at the end of the school year under the direction of Mrs. Kristen Cook. These students had the chance to bond with each other over song and learn their musical niche.
We are so proud of all of these great teachers and students and look forward to seeing all of their successes in the future!
